Hello! My name is James; I’m from Pittsburgh, PA, USA. I’m relatively new to the keyboard enthusiast community. I learned to type as a youngster on my parents’ IBM Model M and have always found the sound of the keys to be tranquilizing
After not thinking much of keyboards through the early part of my professional career, I’ve been using a Das Professional S with Cherry MX Blues exclusively at work for the past 5 years or so. I have had a passing interest in 60% and ortho layouts but have never soldered my own board. After talking with some HHKB owners and reading some posts here and watching some videos, I decided to take the Topre plunge and bought a Leopold F660C with no regrets.
Happy to have found this community; I’m excited to either start with modding stock boards or perhaps build my own from PCB up.
